Subject: A surprising treat!
You guys, this is really not bad! I actually laughed. Was she really 50yrs old? If so she looks great! This show beats all of the others I've seen thus far.
Subject: Too bad it didn't last long
Eve Arden was popular, yet this fine series didn't last long. It may of been due to bad time slot (It was up against a very popular ABC-TV drama). TV audiences may of also had troubles accepting Eve Arden in a different role after her long running previous sitcom. Shame, this is a fun series which should of lasted longer.

I uploaded this yesterday and it still hasn't been moved to the Classic TV section. Damn it!
EDIT: This has now been moved. Yay. It's good.

Subject: Way better than you'd think...
This was a treat to watch. Eve Arden displays a sharp, sarcastic wit that was probably ahead of her time. Or something. The show was nicely written, and very funny in spots. And she's lovely at 50 years old here. The commercials are a great addition as well. They help place it in context.
